Qatar Admits Sending Arms to Terrorists in Syria

TEHRAN (Source: FNA)- Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr al-Thani admitted that his country is interfering in Syria’s internal affairs by supporting terrorists and sending weapons to them.

“Declaring a no-fly-zone and providing safe passages for assistance (to terrorists in Syria) is amongst the most important priorities of Qatar,” al-Thani told the CNN.

He also called on the international community to help armed rebels in Syria, adding that such a move doesn’t need the permission of the UN Security Council.

Qatari and Saudi rulers want an overthrow of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a staunch ally of Iran, and they have taken every measure to this end.

In his latest remarks against Syria, the Emir of Qatar called on the Arab nations to form a political and military coalition to intervene in Syria, posing a direct challenge to UN efforts to resolve the conflict through negotiations.

Also, director of one of the branches of the Doha Bank disclosed financial documents substantiating the Qatari government’s support for terrorist and rebel groups in Syria.  Continue reading

We are now clearly entering a new phase in the propaganda war with regard to Syria, heralded by the NATO-aligned establishment now using the presence of Al-Qaeda fighters in the country, many of whom were airlifted into Syria by NATO powers, as a justification to launch a wider military assault.

For months the establishment media has downplayed the presence and influence of Al-Qaeda rebels as a means of legitimizing the NATO-backed Free Syrian Army’s efforts to topple President Bashar Assad.

Despite innumerable bombings and assassinations targeting the regime, the fact that Al-Qaeda fighters were behind the violence was considered taboo, and some mainstream news outlets even preferred to spin conspiracy theories about Assad’s forces being behind the bombings rather than admit the truth.

The mainstream media now admits that Al-Qaeda is behind most of the anti-Assad violence in Syria and that the Syrian opposition is largely led by Al-Qaeda fighters, backed up by U.S.-funded rebels. In addition, U.S. officials likeAmbassador Susan Rice and the White House itself have all but applauded terrorist bombings in Damascus.

Back in March, leaked emails also revealed that the Pentagon was planning to direct terror attacks and assassinations inside Syria in a bid to topple Assad. Continue reading
